This is the 22nd release of Old Forester’s Birthday Bourbon. The 11 year old barrels were specifically chosen during a tasting panel as a tribute to Old Foresters founder, George Gavin Brown's birthday.
The first scents of caramelized citrus peels and cherries carry you to the aromas of nutmeg, caramel, vanilla bean and cinnamon graham crackers. The initial flavor of vanilla banana pudding over a campfire ushers you through hints of dark chocolate, coffee with cocoa, and seasoned oak. The finish is long and pleasant, filled with coffee, mocha, cinnamon, and lingering dark chocolate.
Bottled at 48% ABV - 96 Proof
